It is with great enthusiasm that Aria Athletic Club at Vail Cascade Resort announces Lara Shapiro has accepted the position of Pilates Supervisor. Lara has been teaching Pilates since 2008, and teaching at Aria Athletic Club since 2012. 

Lara discovered her passion for Pilates when she was 18, receiving Pilates instruction to achieve muscular balance and strength in order to overcome the challenges of scoliosis, a structural curvature of the spine. Lara had such great success with Pilates, she fell in love and embraced it as an alternative healing method and way of life. Lara’s extensive Pilates background includes working under Master Teachers Michele Larsson from Santa Fe and Deborah Lessen from the Green Street Studio in Manhattan. Working with these mentors and experiencing how Pilates can transform the body helped Lara shape her instruction techniques to adapt Pilates to all bodies and experience levels.

Lara believes that physical fitness is fundamental to personal health, happiness and quality of life. Learn how Pilates will enhance your energy, concentration, power, control, balance, mobility and whole body health.
